Story intro

Nikki and Leo both grow up in "Little Italy", a place where their families are running pizza business ("Pizza Napoli") together, located in Toronto. For several years, the verbal conflict between Sal and Vince (father of Nikki and Leo respectively) caused their pizza business to deteriorate, thus they founded their own pizza businesses next to each other's doors, and resulting Nikki leaving the family for London to study cooking. However, Chef Corinne temporarily gives Nikki a break for two weeks so that she can have time to "change her visa" and to work a cooking menu for the upcoming cooking exhibit. Upon arriving home in Toronto, Nikki first met Leo at the bar and they drunkenly play soccer in a midst of the thunderstorm. The next day, she is welcomed by her family on her arrival. Vince, Leo and other crew are later arrested for lacing the pizza with marijuana to the customers during the party but they are released shortly after. Leo later bonds a relationship with Nikki for few days and they slept together after they rode together around the town reliving their childhood memories. Nikki receives a call from Corinne, saying that she wants a cooking a menu, otherwise she will promote another one. Struggling, Nikki expressed her regrets to Leo for having with him and she confronts him for focusing on soccer instead of pizza business. Meanwhile, their respective grandparent's, Franca and Carlo are engaging each other for the last time and Franca finally agrees to marry him, despite she kept a promise from her late husband of not to marry again.
